Electronic Medical Record Vendors
Apelon can help you solve your product’s terminology problem with terminology server software, strategic planning, and client provisioning.
Smart use of standard terminology and information standards is emerging as a key differentiator among electronic medical records vendors. Whether you offer a do-it-all hospital-based EMR or an outpatient specialty product, your users expect their documentation to be standards-compliant for interoperability and analytics. At the same time, the system must be easy to use, and must fit intuitively within an existing practice.
One of the easiest ways to lose a user… or a potential user… is to make them decipher your developers’ acronyms, misspellings, and proprietary jargon. Instead, you need to show them industry-standard terminology where it matters… for interoperability, population health, and analytics applications… and also show them a customizable, clinician-friendly interface for data capture and patient communications.
We can help you do both. Apelon’s terminology and interoperability solutions and our experienced consulting team can help you set up and sustain a semantic infrastructure that links the easy-to-use part with the consistent, interoperable part. We’ll show you how to combine today’s powerful clinical terminologies (including SNOMED CT, LOINC, RadLex, and others) with required billing and electronic data interchange codes (ICD-9-CM, ICD-10-CM, UB-04) and clinician-friendly interface terms in ways that turn your electronic data from an expensive headache to a powerful patient engagement asset.
